What Would Tevye Do?

Mr. Manners on finding the love of a Jewish woman

Last night, 200 protesters traveled to the Israeli city of Bat Yam to reasonably argue, “Any Jewish woman who goes with an Arab should be killed; any Jew who sells his home to an Arab should be killed. “

“These Arabs, they speak Hebrew, they look just like us and they tempt our women,” said Moshe Ben-Zikri, a community administrator in Jerusalem. “Some guy named Arafat says his name is Ofer, and so on. Our girls don’t know these guys are Arab and they fall victim to them and families are destroyed.”

How reasonable! It’s the old Pepsi challenge—when two men look the same, speak the same language, are both circumcised and you don’t know their name, a Jewish woman will choose the Arab man one million percent of the time. Possibly even more often.

Oh, easily-fooled Jewish women, why can’t you understand that Coke is the superior beverage? What does Pepsi have that a thirteen year old screaming about murdering women doesn’t? I have some suggestions for the charming gentlemen.

1. Meet woman that you like.
2. Ask woman out. Do not say you will kill her if she dates, or has dated an Arab. This is more third date material.
3. Eventually you might meet the parents. If they have an Arab tenant, instead of killing them, compliment them on their drapes.

You follow these instructions, and Jewish woman will still date whoever they want—but who they want might just include you.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Ha ha. Funny. These types of demonstrations smell of racism but it is a real problem. The media in Israel are full of stories of Jewish women who marry Arab men and after the wedding really discover what it means to be a wife in their culture. Many of these women end up fleeing back to their families. It may be non-PC to say so, but not all cultures are wonderful in all respects. I seriously doubt if many of Tablet’s women readers would want to marry a traditional Moslem.

I’ve said that least 676312 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean
